What surprised me when I moved to Luxembourg ? Life takes us to different places as expatriates and made us unexpected surprises. Expatriation means new experiences, new knowledge and an appreciation of the beauty of diversity. Here are my impressions when I arrived in Luxembourg from Bosnia as an expatriate.
Luxembourg is a center of different nationalities and cultures
Encountering different cultures and variety of customs is recognized and well supported in Luxembourg. It is very common while walking through the city to hear different languages. This is of course almost impossible in Bosnia. These facts leads to the feeling that generally in Luxembourg, you don’t feel a foreigner in a foreign country. Strange but true.
Public transport is very well organized in Luxembourg and works by well-established order, especially during rush hour. Autobuses usually have their own lanes, which is very practical and fast way of transferring. Trains, which are practical and easily accessible provide very good connections between Luxembourg City and other cites.
Healthy habits in lunch time
Sounds motivating and fantastic, but very likely in Luxembourg. Part of the lunch break is used for a sports activity such as running or swimming. It is really a different concept of using time and the adoption of heathy habits. Many parks and swimming pools spread around the town provide excellent conditions for sport.
Maternity in Luxembourg
Maternity was also another extremely positive experience at the beginning of our stay in Luxembourg as I was pregnant. In these special moments overflowed by different emotions, kindness and attention carried with smile and support by staff of clinic leave a very good impression. It makes you feel very confident and fine.
Diversity of products and variety of cuisines
The presence and influence of different world cuisines and a huge offer of different products makes it easier for everyday cooking. It also provides the opportunity for exploring new flavors. For me as a person who really enjoys cooking, it was one of the more impressive and precious experiences.
